I am a creative entrepreneur, writer, director, advertising creative and producer. I am a Nipkow fellow and an alumnus of Maisha Film Lab, Berlinale Talents, Durban Talents, Cinemart Rotterdam Lab. I have received grants/awards from the Sundance Institute and Durban Filmmart. In 2018, I was an Odyssee Artist in Residency in Saint Jean D’Angeley France.
I have been an artist since 2008.
I am applied for this grant in order to pay for some of my living expenses as I concentrate on writing a children’s picture book and to pay an editor and the artist who will do the illustrations and the designer who will layout the final ebook.
I will self publish an illustrated children’s picture book. This is the first of the book series ‘’The Misadventures of Keerabow" which is also the basis of a multimedia franchise that includes books, animated series, toys, T shirts etc.
